Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A newcomer when he auditioned for "The Man in the Moon", London went on to appear in the thriller "December" (also 1991) before hitting his stride with Richard Linklater's Gen-X comedy "Dazed and Confused" (1993). As Randy 'Pink' Floyd, football player and group conscience for this latter-day "American Graffiti", London conveyed the proper combination of self doubt and confidence for a teen on the verge of adulthood. He played one of Susan Sarandon's brood in the drama "Safe Passage" (1994), a small-town hick entranced with John Leguizamo's Chi Chi Rodriguez in "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar", and a victimized teen in the drama "Fall Time" (both 1995).On TV, London bowed in a Fox vampire thriller, "Blood Ties" (1991), then went on to appear in such TV movies as "Country Estates" (ABC, 1993), the 1993 PBS film "I'll Fly Away: Then and Now" (as Nathan Bedford, the role for which he...

Notes

"I was raised in a poor, lower-class setting where you had to be strong and independent. If I'd had a secure upbringing, I might have been more vulnerable."--Jason London, quoted in "December" PR

"Right now, our careers are both at different places. I lean more toward the feature stuff and he's really good on TV. He's making lots of money and I'm not. Yet."--Jason London on brother Jeremy, USA TODAY, 10/6/93
